Shutdown in Srinagar against BJP leaders’ blasphemous remarks


In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, people observed shutdown, today, to register protest against the derogatory remarks made by BJP leaders on the holy Prophet (peace be upon him).

Most of the shops and business establishments were shut in old city areas, popularly known as downtown, in and around the Lal Chowk city centre and other parts of Srinagar.

The occupation authorities deployed Indian troops and police personnel in strength in Srinagar and elsewhere in the Kashmir Valley to prevent people from thwarting demonstrations against blasphemous statements of the BJP leaders.

Fearing massive anti-India demonstrations, the occupation authorities also locked the historic Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, and other mosques in the territory and disallowed people to offer Juma prayers.—KMS
